Katie was our doula for the birth of our second child. She provided compassionate, comprehensive support not only during the birth, but throughout the pregnancy and postpartum period. She was supportive of our ever evolving birth plan, providing information, never judgement, so that we could make informed decisions for our family. And while Katie provided invaluable support to me as the birthing mother, she was also there for my husband every step of the way. I can't thank her enough for supporting our family in such a kind, gentle, compassionate way.
Katie is an amazing doula and I can't recommend her enough. She was a calming and helpful resource before birth and especially during labor. My partner and I both loved having her involved with the birth; she was open to what we (and our midwifery team) needed. We are a queer trans family and felt completely supported and respected by Katie. She is well trained and well suited to this type of work. Her passion and her love for helping families and babies was always evident. Hire her!
Katie was a wonderful doula! She was gentle, soft spoken and encouraging.She brought a calming to me in the times where I started to feel panicked. She was by my side throughout the whole process and for some time after my daughter arrived as well. I highly recommend her as a doula!
